Furniture meets abstract sculpture

These sculptural chairs come to us courtesy of New York-based design firm Aranda\Lasch, though based from their looks, comfort isn't one of the chairs' better qualities. They're made of metal pipes, and each frame is upholstered in silicone foam and hand-sewn leather. Called Railing, the new collection was unveiled this week at Design Miami 2015, which runs until December 6, 2015.

"Though the pieces in the collection vary in size, shape, function and complexity, each one carries the same logic of a single line that curves through a lattice of fractal circles and comes back to itself to form a continuous loop," Aranda\Lasch explained.

Great design, but a loser when it comes to practical, comfortable seating. I still want one, though.
